For some time following the networking of ITV presentation across England (28th October 2002), only a dirty network feed of programmes and continuity was available to UTV and STV, hence the network graphics/announcer for the ECP.
We also see the production endboard for Coronation Street, reading “A Granada Television Production”, with a small Granada logo.
